Alex Prunty took the lead on lap 1 and never relinquished it to win his first National Short Track Championship at the Rockford Speedway. That doesn't mean there wasn't racing going on and several crashes. Early on, Jon Reynolds Jr. got rear-ended. That did not deter Jon as he was able to make repairs and eventually finish third.
Rob Braun took second place.
After winning the late model events on Friday and Saturday, Michael Bilderback was running in the front of the pack and then something happened in turn 1. I was unable to see exactly what, other than there was a crash. This incident took Michael out of contention and he was unable to secure the bonus. There were several incidents of which Grant Griesback's was very interesting as he climbed the wall between turns 3 and 4. The race had to be red-flagged while the wall was repaired
Throughout the race Alex had the dominant car and no one was able to keep up. Here is what he had to say in Victory Lane.
The winning car.
In the Mid-American Stock Car Series it was Ron Vandermeir Jr. taking the win for the second time in two years.
This was a race with a lot of cautions, nine in total There were several crashes/dust-ups.
And then there was the Super Cup Invitational. Super Cup cars are 1/2 scale NASCAR style cars with usually a Honda engine. These are race cars and on the right track achieve speeds approaching 100 MPH.
In the Feature race, it was Jamie Domski, of Genoa City, Wi. taking the win.
And the winning car.
It was a great day of racing for the final day of the Rockford Speedway 52nd Annual National Short Track Championships. I want to give a special shout out and thank you to Mrs. Jodie Deery. These races wouldn't be the same without her.
And another special shout out to Wisconsin racing legend Rich Bickle who ran in the Super Late Model race.
Here are a few more images from today's racing.
